A video on alcoholic addiction and how people with addictions are always vulnerable to relapse.
It's interesting how insidious drinking alcohol can be. Kendra Sebelius is a 31 year-old accountant who first noticed symptoms of binge drinking in her college years. During this time in her life, Kendra tells us that binge drinking did not seem to be out of the ordinary behavior. Even though she experienced black outs during this time, she didn't realize that she had a drinking problem until years later. It was then, when she became physically addicted and used alcohol to cope with a myriad of mental health problems, that she realized she had a big problem. Eventually, Kendra was forced into an alcohol detox center where her recovery began. (Are you drinking too much? Check out signs of alcoholism.)
